LPDOC Action: Urgent Message: Peltier’s Transfer

LPDOC Action: Urgent Message: Peltier’s Transfer
Urgent Message: Peltier’s Transfer
Forwarded on behalf of the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee
09 Jan 2009, 7:30 p.m.
Thursday afternoon, we were notified that Leonard would be
transferred on Monday. We don’t know which facility he will be
assigned to, but we want to ask everyone to email/fax the officials
at the Federal Bureau of Prisons Designation and Sentence Computation
Center (DSCC) in Grand Prairie, TX.
Re: Leonard Peltier 89637-132
Inform them the Turtle Mountain Tribal Council has passed a
resolution to have Leonard there. In addition, there are two other
federal facilities, Sandstone, MN & Oxford, WI, which Leonard could
be assigned to which will allow his relatives to come and see him.
This transfer will offset his parole hearing scheduled for February,
and we won’t have any information until Leonard has arrived at his
next facility.
I would also ask you to send up a prayer for my brother, along with
your messages supporting his transfer to these locations. We still
have his parole and clemency to concentrate on after he arrives
at what our family hopes will be the last stop of our 33-year-old
nightmare. I can’t begin to imagine the insanity of being locked
away for so long, and the whole time you know you are innocent as
the rest of the world outside of America does.
This nightmare has to end now and it is going to take each and
everyone one of you to make an active stand to help end it. For years
we have said that Leonard could have been any one of you. Anyone
with a conscience, heart and soul who dares to speak up against
the government could end up falsely imprisoned or dead.
My brother was in South Dakota that day to help provide safety to
a community of Elders and traditional people. He and his friends
in the American Indian Movement were asked to come there. Leonard
didn’t have to, but he is a very unselfish person, so without
regard to his own safety, he went to Oglala. Everyone can see the
Robert Redford film "Incident at Oglala", and Leonard’s trials,
for all of the details about what happened there.
This February 6th will mark 33 years since his arrest and so much
has happened. A generation has been born and is having children,
many of Leonard’s friends and family has passed on, and the world
has moved on. Maybe that is a way to understand what it feels to be
falsely imprisoned and to live a nightmare. A life sentence is really
a sentence of death. And being innocent is a 24/7 torture. All you
have to look forward to is another day like yesterday with tomorrow
being no better.
My brother has two life sentences to look forward through, and it
is his belief, as well as mine, that he will come home. Keep sending
us your prayers and support so that we can break down those walls!
Thank you,
Betty Ann Peltier-Solano
